Youth Soccer League Sues NFL over Super Bowl 50 Construction | Bleacher Report

"A youth soccer league has filed a lawsuit against the National Football League and the city of Santa Clara," Louie reported. "That's because the NFL started construction Monday in the soccer fields across from Levi's Stadium as part of plans for Super Bowl 50."

The NFL began construction with plans to create "a media village, security and event staging," per Louie. That construction is estimated to be displacing 6,000 youth soccer players."


Can't say I blame them.

The almighty dollar pushing everyone else around, as usual.

really sad, but the fact remains that the city owns the fields, not the youth soccer league.

Seriously bad optics (as the saying goes these days) for the NFL!
